Junior & Intermediate Java Developers – Job Specification

ABRS Ltd. is currently recruiting for Junior & Intermediate Java Developers to work for an Insurance company based in Central London. With our client expanding their insurance platform functionality – which uses Domain-Driven Design, Event Sourcing, and a microservices architecture – this is an excellent opportunity for any developers who are looking to gain experience in creating end-to-end solutions in Java.

Who you will be working with

A collaborative bunch of smart and approachable developers with many years of expertise and knowledge in a wide range of domains. You’ll be working in an environment of mutual trust between development and business, with a ‘we are all in this together’ attitude.

Additionally, our client is extremely passionate about clean, simple code and flexible, resilient architectures and fosters a strong sense of teamwork, whilst also encouraging autonomy so as to enable employees to grow, learn and teach others.

What you will find here

A complex and interesting domain, with the added spice of real commercial drivers pushing and pulling the company in directions that are hard to anticipate. Yet, despite that, our client has clear goals to achieve; goals they know will make the company even more successful.

Working environment

A relaxed, fun, open and honest environment in which trust and professionalism are highly valued, with a happy slice of light-hearted scepticism thrown in for good measure. Our client also puts great stock in promoting a healthy work/life balance and therefore provides flexible working hours for all employees.

They believe in continuous hands-on delivery and actively encourage developers to come forward with their ideas and constantly try to remove or reduce any unnecessary bureaucracy that delays the development process. Additionally, they adhere to a flat structure that gives everyone the same opportunities to step up and communicate with all stakeholders, including CTO and business leaders.

Key skills:

* At least 4 years’ Java development experience
* Understanding of OO and S.O.L.I.D. principles
* Comprehensive understanding of HTTP + RESTful API’s + Clients
* Linux, GIT, Maven and Gradle
* Coding with agility and pragmatism

Nice to have:

* Cloud/AWS experience

* Familiar with clean architectures eg. Ports and Adapters


* A base salary between £30,000 – £55,000
* An awesome team environment
* Private health insurance
* Discounted gym membership
* Very flexible working hours
* Breakfast on us
* Choice of 27” iMac or a high-end PC
